IBF #8 super bantamweight Luis “Orlandito” Del Valle (22-2, 16 KOs) says he has what it takes to derail unbeaten and highly touted Diego de la Hoya (15-0, 9 KOs) when they collide on the September 17 Canelo-Smith pay per view telecast.
“The fans can expect fireworks on the 17th,” said Del Valle. “We’re both warriors and know that something bigger will follow if we win in a high profile fight like this. He is a good young fighter that has talent but I’m battle tested. I’ve fought former world champions and learned from my past bouts where I was matched tough. My experience will be a key for me in this fight. I can’t wait to put on a show for boxing fans all over the world!”
